The fidget spinners in question are the brass and metal Fidget Wild Premium Spinners distributed by Bulls i Toy, says the U.S. Public Interest Research Group (PIRG) Education Fund.
The Target page for Fidget Wild Spinner Premium Brass does indeed say it's for people 14 and older, though The Washington Post reported that the fidget spinner's manufacturer labeled them for anyone at least six years old. The group said tests conducted showed the items contained between 520 parts per million and 33,000 ppm of lead. One of the two models was found to have 330 times the amount of lead allowed in children's products.
Both Target and the manufacturer say the items are still on the shelves because the spinners are not meant to be children's toys. "As a result", the spokesperson wrote, "the fidget spinners identified are not regulated as toys or children's products and are not required to meet children's product standards".
Target and Bulls-I-Toys do not plan to take any action because the spinners aren't technically considered children't products by the Consumer Product Safety Commission. But, after the company reviewed the products, it made a decision to pull them anyway.
Bulls i Toy did not immediately return USA TODAY's request for comment.
